Well, the time has come for the contest. It's going to be a chilly day tomorrow so dress warm and have fun if you show up. We are putting off drilling holes until 11:00 a.m tomorrow, 2 hours later than normal, but the holes are still going to freeze over a bit so bring a small ice chissel if you plan on coming down and brave the cold. National Weather Service says that the lows tonight are going to be about -15 deg. with a high of 2 deg. Hope to see you on the lake and happy fishing.

This is starting to look like a blog. We've got the fish weigh-in tent set up and the onions are frying for the fresh hamburgers. Mmmmm! They smell good and bet they'll taste even better once you try them.

The ice is at 14 inches and we got to plow more of the lake off than originally on Tuesday so that should open up the better fishing areas a bit.

See you in about 3 hours if you can make it.

Again, Thanks for the support!

    • We use ventless, but we have enough cracks in ours that we get plenty of fresh air  plus we don't sleep in ours.   I agree with the "door frosting shut" comment! . I do use a homemade "two 12v computer fans" contraption that moves the air around pretty good good, i just mount it above the furnace and it blows the rising heat down and to the sides.
    • I'd be more worried about height.   You might wind up hitting the roof quite a bit when you move your spear unless you hang it with the spear head in the water?   Might want to that out first.
    • I have two decoy jig sticks that just slip in between the rods and 'canvas' on the roof.  A fish can pull some line off it hits hard.  A Velcro loop can be added for additional security.   There are more custom ways of doing it but that works for me.
    • I'll betcha the camera doesn't survive the summer.   And I clean my weeds off and the pull the plug too without grumbling.
    • I know...   It was a joke...   This is Sillytown (capital S)...     I did check to see if the article was legit though.

    • This is silly town.  It was a joke, although on a stand alone basis the article was pretty interesting.   If it was an actual discussion item it would have been posted in one of the hunting forums.
